    Were (are) Remington 1187 target barrels made in improved modified choke? In Remchoke? Were(are) they "step-rib" barrels? From the Remington web site I get the impression they are not presently available...................AJ

    Early 11/87 target barrels were fixed choke, but I have never seen one in IM. The factory overbore 11/87 trap barrel were RemChoke barrels, but took chokes that were marked "Trap Full," "Trap Extra Full," and "Trap Super Full." The dimensions of these chokes were actually the same as the regular RemChokes in Skeet, Mod, and Full, respectively. There are also non-step rib target barrels.

    The step rib, backbored, 1197 trap barrel has a built in .018" constriction, which is modified. Even if you put in a cylinder bore choke (.000") you'd still have a modified. You have to add .018" to any choke you install in it. That's why Remington took the guesswork out of what chokes to install by issuing a special set suitably marked for this barrel. They are standard Rem Chokes that are relabeled.
